2015 Senate Bill 438: Revise utility regulations, raise renewable mandate

To re-write the state law regulating electric utility monopolies. Along with Senate Bill 437, this bill replaces the current market-driven process for new power plant capacity and site decision with a more centralized process inspired by Obama-era regulations expected to be repealed in 2017. The bill also increases from 10 percent to 15 percent the amount of power that utilities must get from renewable sources, which could mean hundreds of additional industrial wind turbine towers in rural communities. The final version leaves in place a small amount of electricity provider competition available to some commercial customers.
